Adam Ezra Group
Adam Ezra Groups songwriting is making waves around the country.
The co-write, Let Your Hair Down with producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta, (American Authors), just received Song of the Year at the New England Music Awards. A songwriting partnership with the legendary John Oates is taking Ezra back and forth between Nashville and tour. The theme song, Grow Your Own Way, was central to Midwest insurance giant, Country Financials 2014/15 marketing campaign. In addition, Adam Ezras debut efforts in movie scoring have lead to an appearance at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and the release of Adam Ezra Groups new album, aptly titled, Songs for a Movie.
This 16 song marathon studio production is the culmination of three years of writing, planning, arranging, and recording for the independent film release, Folk Hero & Funny Guy. Much of the writing and recording occurred while on tour; in hotel rooms, hallways, green rooms, and while literally driving the American highways often referenced within the album.
A tireless touring outfit, the Adam Ezra Group (AEG) played upwards of 200 shows in 2015, often devoting their time to local charities and always going out of their way to connect with fans. The Group is made up of lead singer, songwriter and guitarist, Adam Ezra, Alex Martin on drums, Turtle on percussion, Corinna Smith on fiddle, Francis Hickey on bass and Josh Gold on keys.
Together they are creating a powerful, inclusive community around AEG shows that is beginning to be compared to a social-movement as much as a traditional music fan-base. Its this dedication to fans that inspired the 2016 Get Folked Concert Tour in which Ezra ventured solo/acoustic to the homes of 30 fans in as many days and almost as many states to play house concerts throughout the entire month of January.
Ezra started his own non-profit organization called RallySound in order to better support fans and activists dedicated to making the world a better place. The proceeds from the video for the latest single Let Your Hair Down are being donated toward micro-grants for cancer patients struggling to make ends meet while in treatment. The Adam Ezra Group hosts a free festival each year called The Ramble. Last year over 3,000 people came out, and another 2,000 people tuned in via livestreaming from around the country and they raised money to help build a handicap accessible home for a wounded veteran.
